This is a 4.5 mile walk around the outskirts of Marple. It is easy, mainly flat with varied terraine along well established paths and tracks. It begins in the centre of Marple then follows the Peak Forest canal. There will be a lunch stop at the ancient Chadkirk Chapel before a gentle climb to the site of Marple Hall and a short stretch of the Middlewood Way. Crossing Marple Golf Club (carefully!) to join the Macclesfield Canal towpath the walk returns to the starting point.

There are no places to buy refreshments en route so bring what you need: including sun cream and water. There will be pub and teashop opportunities in Marple at the end. Dogs welcome on this walk.
